Best Sports Apps for Staying in the Game

Updated February 23, 2015

Real life can be a busy place, and sometimes your favorite things—including sports—can get lost in all the hustle and bustle. That doesn't mean you should simply reconcile yourself to missing out. Your mobile device is the only thing you need to keep on top of your favorite sports. You just need the right apps to help you stay in the game.

Sports Live Scores

1. The Foundation

The first step toward keeping your head in the game is knowing about the games. That's where Sports Live Scores, Alerts, News & Schedules – All US Major Leagues comes in. It gathers up the major U.S. pro sports leagues in a single app, so you can easily monitor all your favorite teams in one convenient interface. Set timers to remind you of upcoming games, so you'll know when to drop everything and head to your couch. Need to refresh your memory? Scores from the season's earlier games are right there on your phone or tablet. The app downloads schedules and results to your phone, so you don't even need a live connection to keep the facts at your fingertips.


2. Up To the Minute

It's a sad fact that there simply aren't enough hours in the day to watch all the sports events available through broadcast or streaming. Sometimes you'll need to prioritize, working or watching a game but following your other sporting passions through a live scores ticker. Sports Livescore might be the only one you'll ever need, no matter how wide-ranging your interests. It'll stream constantly updated scores for a stunning range of sports, from the NBA and NFL to niche interests such as handball. Just pick your favorites, and prepare to be informed.


3. The World in Your Ear

There's a lot to be said for relaxing on the couch in front of a big TV at game time, but it's not always a practical option. If you have things to do, or if the game you want isn't available on television, sometimes the radio is your best bet. Thanks to Internet streaming, and apps such as Sports Radio Stations, you can listen in to big games from all across the U.S.—not just your immediate area—and around the world. Anywhere there's cellular service or a Wi-Fi signal, you'll be right in the middle of the action.


4. A Visual Aid

Coaches are often famous—or notorious—for the lengths they'll take to help keep their players focused on the game, even between games. Fans don't need to have that kind of life-or-death intensity, but visual reminders of your favorite sports are kind of fun. If you have room on your wall for team posters, or on your car for bumper stickers, you'll probably want to have some fun sports-themed wallpapers on your phone as well. Apps such as Sports Live offer a variety of fun, high-resolution wallpapers to help feed your sporting obsession.
